February is Heart Month
Health is Wealth
Be good to your heart. Make lifestyle changes to improve your health and reduce the risk of heart disease.
1. Be more active: Find an activity or hobby that you enjoy. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Walk with a friend.
2. Eat a healthy balanced diet: Eat high fibre foods like whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Avoid fad diets. Watch the portion size of your foods.
3. Control high blood pressure: Discuss your current medications and their risks of increasing blood pressure with your doctor or pharmacist. Meditation, yoga and breathing exercises can help lower blood pressure.
